I’m a sucker for super cute hair styles, and especially ones that allow me to plop my hair on top of my head without washing it.

And normally, you stay pretty unappealing for roughly three days afterwards, though I guess it depends on just how sick you were. Unfortunately, we don’t always have all the recuperation time we need. That’s when it’s important to think back to your sorority days and just how those lady lushes managed to look attractive even after a week-long bender. Better take notes. More »
